    A7r Teardown: LensRentals

    I didn't see this mentioned elsewhere, so thought I'd post it. Sorry if it's a duplicate. Feel free to delete if it's redundant.

    Sony A7R teardown at LensRentals

    "The completely disassembled Sony A7R consists of about a dozen major pieces, held together with 29 screws of just three different sizes. A typical DSLR has around 120 screws of 11 different sizes."

    Wow love how well they put that together . Very simply and looks extremely well done.

    Yes, the relative simplicity is admirable.

    Lensrentals demonstrated that the A7r is to cameras what Swatch watches are to watches ! Looks very nice. Thank you for the link.

    Nice! I would love to know the thickness differences (if any) of the sensor cover glass of the A7 vs. the A7r. With the cover glass being held on by clips, it's only a matter of time till someone decides to remove it and then test with a comprehensive set of lenses.
